DAY OF REMEMBRANCE 2021

 

Mother Nature could not stop us! Wow, what a “Day of Remembrance!” 2021 will be remembered for the heavy rain, but it will also be remembered for the great turnout of survivors, law enforcement, and invited guests! Thank you to everyone who braved the weather and made our return to in person remembrance a success. If you get a chance, please visit the memorial and check out our new plaque dedicated to the all the first responder heroes from the Wade Dump fire in Chester, Pa.  in 1978. It is a beautiful remembrance.

“We Remember” 

Remembering Chief Robert Sparks

 

                                             

                                            

 

It was a few years in the making, but patience paid off this morning for our 2nd vice president Dennis Daly. A hero plaque was dedicated to Chief Robert Sparks of the Glenolden Police Department who made the ultimate sacrifice 46 years ago today. March 25,1975. The plaque was placed in the same spot where Chief Sparks was shot and killed during a robbery. Rest In Peace Chief, “We remember”

President Thank You

     Now Past President, Jim Reardon would like to thank everyone that made the past 9 years very special. As always stated, the Police Memorial Foundation is made up of volunteers and what has been accomplished to meet the mission’s goals is simply amazing. A special thanks the Executive Board and the Board of Directors of the foundation, the dedication is second to none. The hugs, handshakes, and smiles from our survivors and friends of law enforcement, like our heroes, will never be forgotten! Good luck to our new executive board;    Harry O’Neil (President), Lisa DeMartine (Vice President), Dennis Daly (2nd Vice President), Cyrise Dixon (Secretary), Matt Illich (Treasurer)
